    oh just asked this question on another vid of yours
    wondering is one should water a cacti more than often once it has flower buds
    I am some ready to bloom and wonder if i should keep it more on the dry side or give it a good watering

    I have never seen a cacti split like that, you should have given it a can of guiness 🙂

    Glad to hear it will be fine. It does look fatal. Best wishes Bob.

    This happened to one of my L. Williamsii but it seems to still be growing well after withholding water for a bit

    That's too bad. It's good information to know though.

    Interesting! TFS I have a few cacti and succulents on the go. Is it okay for a cactus to rest on the edge of its pot, whether the body of the cactus or just a branch? I've been worried it would lead to damage or rot. Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated Lyn 🙂

    I just got this cactus for Mothers Day. How often should it be watered? I was thinking twice a month.

    Interesting vid ,I never had that happen to my Lophophoras, but i recently learned that I water them too little
    and that they normally do not grow as slow as mine.
    Do you keep a cactus with an "open wound" like that dry to prevent rot
    or does it get a  normal amount of water?
    Have an awesome week you both!

    I hear you saying, "the same happened to Lophophora".
    Make sure that Loph, Turbinicarpus, Gymnocactus, Escobaria, Epithelantha, Aztekium… are kept in well drained soil : more like gravel and only give them fertilizer at half of the dose (or less) then what you give your other plants.
    Most cacti don't mind to be "over watered" once in a while (that is 1 or 2 times per year…) but slow growing species do mind. Sometimes it is better just to spray them wet in the morning instead of watering them.
    This also happens in their habitat. Most cacti live on condensation of air moisture. I heard from a person who went on a cacti tour in Mexico that we cannot compare our "fog" with the Mexican fog. In the morning dense clouds of fog are hanging in valleys and on mountain slopes (same happens in Chile at an even larger scale). Hanging your clothes outside during the night to dry them is not the greatest idea over there… But when the sun starts to shine, all water evaporates in no matter of time. And plants have to wait for the next night to quench their thurst.
